§ 99. Mr. R. Robinson
asked the Minister of Health why Chloromycetin is no longer available to patients under the National Health Service in cases where it is prescribed by their doctors.
§ Mr. Blenkinsop
To ensure that this scarce and expensive drug is used to the best advantage, I have arranged to purchase all available supplies and to distribute them through regional hospital board centre:. The boards have discretion to make supplies available through the distribution centres to practitioners in domiciliary practice in exceptional cases.
